CHOSEN BECAUSE… “Dr. Lauretta Justin’s motto is ‘Mentor, Empower and Care,’ and she offers eye exams in an underserved community and provides three annual scholarships to seniors. At Optometry Divas, Dr. Justin focuses on empowering women to succeed in personal and professional life, connecting female optometrists to foster sisterhood and promote each other positively.”
As the executive optometrist at Millennium Eye Center, Dr. Lauretta Justin provides holistic eyecare to patients. As CEO and founder of Optometry Divas, she leads ambassadors as they manage their respective chapters.
Dr. Justin has been in the optical industry for 20 years, after graduating from the New England College of Optometry in 2002. Two years after graduation, she founded Millennium Eye Center—a primary care optometry practice in Orlando, Fla.
During the pandemic, Dr. Justin reduced the number of patient visits per day, and reduced the number of doctor hours per day. As a result, she provided better quality care while working less.
“My husband is legally blind from Best’s Disease. Seeing his daily challenges fuels me to help my patients see 20/20,” she said. “At Optometry Divas, I’m inspired by the dedication, integrity, vibrancy, assertiveness and self-awareness of all the divas. They inspire me every day.”
In 2015, she launched the Optometry Divas organization, which has been a great success. “I decided to create a place where women ODs can empower, connect, and promote each other’s success,” she noted.
SHE SAYS… “Before you can be great, you have to be good and before you can be good, you have to start. If you’re waiting until you have everything figured out, you may never start.”
